All doctors encounter patients with advanced life-threatening illness and it is important that we develop competence in managing these patients throughout the progression of their illness and in caring for patients who are dying. General practitioners are at the front line of this care and although hospice care is becoming more accessible to patients in South Africa, patients rely on their GPs to provide continuity of care and support. This edition of CME provides an update of some key aspects of palliative care for the GP.
